Avibhāga (अविभाग, “non-separation”).—Both Gauḍapāda and Vācaspati interpret the term avibhāga in the sense of dissolution (merger). Vācaspati says, at the time of dissolution (pratisarga), the effects merge in their respective causes, as an earthen pot merge in clay and a gold made ring, crown etc. merge in their respective causes gold. By such merger, an effect become non-different from the cause. For this reason, from the perspective of non-difference of effect, a cause appear as avyakta. Thus, the five gross elements (mahābhūtas), dissolving in the five subtle elements (tanmātras), reveal five subtle elements (tanmātras) as avyakta in respect of them

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (shaktism)
Avibhāga (अविभाग) refers to an “inseparable (body)”, according to the King Vatsarāja’s Pūjāstuti called the Kāmasiddhistuti (also Vāmakeśvarīstuti), guiding one through the worship of the Goddess Nityā.—Accordingly, “[...] O goddess, I praise you with mind and speech. Your greatness is primordial. Your limbs are slightly ruddy like the morning sun, and you have made the triple world happy. You are the bride of the god [i.e., Śiva], and possess a body inseparable (avibhāga-bhogā) [from his]. You bestow worldly enjoyment and also liberation from [the world]. You are the stream [of consciousness or immortality], O ruler of worlds. [...]”.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
